This is a polished, professionally produced introduction to the Java programming language. It's suitable for a wide audience, ranging from those with no programming experience at all to people like me looking to fill a hole in our repertoires. The course is organized progressively, beginning with Java basics and covering gradually more advanced topics. Each unit includes a series of short lectures, most of which are followed by brief programming problems or questions. A problem set, with more in-depth programming assignments, follows most of the lecture series. There's also an optional final project. The instructors are excellent and no textbook is necessary (although beginners may find themselves occasionally in need of a reference -- and there are plenty to be found on the web). The course expects you to install the free BlueJ programming environment, and provides you with downloadable files corresponding to the online programming assignments. This approach not only provides greater opportunity for debugging and program refinement than is possible in a screen submission, but also familiarizes you with a very useful programming tool. For those who care about credentials, note that Udacity no longer offers certificates of completion for those who have not enrolled in the expensive pay version of the course; this class is so introductory, however, that few will suffer as a result.

From the begging data structure , decisions , loops then to inherit, giving a complete picture of object oriented programming. cons:no classed notes/ppt available, each time need to watch the video lectures again to find back what i was taught
